Red face Vai on American Idol!!!

From the Favored Nations Entertainment facebook page...

Steve Vai will be part of Mary J. Blige And The All-Stars this Wednesday night on "Idol Gives Back"! They will be performing "Stairway To Heaven!" The excitement begins at 8:00 PM/7:00 PM central on Fox!

I'll be there to check it out, and when I say "there", I mean my couch of course!

Re: Vai on American Idol!!!

I wonder if Simon will tell Steve "Great playing but drop the goofy faces."

Anyone catch the show? Vai had his Jem/Euphoria doubleneck... Kinda cool! I thought the band behind Mary J was very good...

Travis Barker really surprised me!

Re: Vai on American Idol!!!

you didn't miss much. That Arianthi (sp) chick was up there. i'm not a fan at all. so now she's in the spotlight cuz she's a chick. big deal. she plays alright, but nothing worth the hype. flavor of the season at best

Re: Vai on American Idol!!!

It obviously focused more on Mary...not enough on Vai - they didn't really "spotlight" Ori - they did for the solo - but that's because she was playing it - just as she did on the recording if you watch the video on YouTube. Vai has taken her under his wing - so he see's something that is spotlight worthy!

I guess though - being a chick does help! I've seen some other picutres of her looking pretty damn hot! Not last night, but she can! I think she needs to get rid of the bangs...and switch over to Ibanez! They can get her a sexier guitar to go with that body!

That little girl will wind up like Jennifer Batten (forgotten in time) simply because she was Michael Jackson's guitar player (if she's even worthy of the title).

Vai has taken her under his wing, because she has Britney Cha Ching potential :P

Re: Vai on American Idol!!!

This live version blows worse than the studio version. The drummer sounded too far ahead of the beat. Too much ****ery.

And I thought Randy Jackson played Mike Lull basses (though the 5 string Big Al bass rocks!).

Guys, if you want to slag on Orianthi, slag on her cheesy pop songs. Or participating in the Stairway abortion. But at least the one pop song of hers has a cool solo.

I just don't see or hear anything to bitch about regarding her playing. She plays decent shredderness fast and sounds pretty dang soulful slow.

Re: Vai on American Idol!!!

She is nothing special. There are many out there than can do what she does. She is only where she is because she is a chick that can shred and isn't butt ugly. If she were a dude no body would be aware of her/his existence beyond You Tube vids.
